A Classic Threesome Anthem Is Born

By thelostboy | The Lost Boys September 29, 2009 at 7:44AM

Today Britney Spears released the first and only single off her completely unnecessary second greatest hits album, "The Singles Collection." The song is called "3," and you guessed it, it's an ode to threesomes (and according to one lyric, the potential of four). And despite absolutely horrendous and occasionally non-sensical lyrics ("1, 2, 3/Not only you and me/Got one eighty degrees/And I'm caught in between/Countin' 1, 2, 3/Peter, Paul & Mary/Gettin' down with 3P"), Ms. Spears has once again won over my soft spot for garbage pop, and I think I'm already on repeat listen number 33.

Listen below, and if you want to ruin the fun a little, the lyrics are posted after the jump.

Britney Spears - "3"

1, 2, 3
Not only you and me
Got one eighty degrees
And I'm caught in between
Countin'
1, 2, 3
Peter, Paul & Mary
Gettin' down with 3P
Everybody loves ***
Countin'

Babe, pick a night
To come out and play
If it's alright
What do you say?

Merrier the more
Triple fun that way
Twister on the floor
What do you say?

Are - you in
Livin' in sin is the new thing (yeah)
Are - you in
I am countin'!

1, 2, 3
Not only you and me
Got one eighty degrees
And I'm caught in between
Countin'
1, 2, 3
Peter, Paul & Mary
Gettin' down with 3P
Everybody loves ***
Countin'

Three is a charm
Two is not the same
I don't see the harm
So are you game?

Lets' make a team
Make 'em say my name
Lovin' the extreme
Now are you game?

Are - you in
Livin' in sin is the new thing
Are - you in
I am countin'!

1, 2, 3
Not only you and me
Got one eighty degrees
And I'm caught in between
Countin'
1, 2, 3
Peter, Paul & Mary
Gettin' down with 3P
Everybody loves ***

What we do is innocent
Just for fun and nothin' meant
If you don't like the company
Let's just do it you and me
You and me...
Or three....
Or four....
- On the floor!
